I was amazed to see this butterfly in the very early spring, but apparently that is not unusual. Given the cold it stopped often but with some patience allowed me to get a long distance shot at 500mm. Its furry face caught my attention. The light was hard and changing, with a slight green color cast. Talking to another photographer who was interested in insect photography, one of the points I made is that insect photography is taken with all variety of lenses from wide-angle to moderate telephoto. I would not recommend taking insect shots at 500mm, you can lose some resolution/detail.
